The jig is up … I just watched President Donald Trump on TV — his first public appearance since his reelection loss to Joe Biden — as he attends a Veterans Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. His somber demeanor is fitting for the moment, depending on your view of this American holiday, but the […]Read More 2020 post-election meditations: Trump’s loss shows everyone who he really is
‘Heal’ is a throwaway word … During last night’s speech as President-elect, Joe Biden talked about the importance of Americans seeing each other as Americans and healing: Heal?

Was African descendant […]Read More 2020 post-election meditations: ‘Heal’? From what?
Thoughtful and equitable governing is needed now. Or else … I’ve shared offline conversations for a few weeks with my friends about the effects of Trump and MAGA-ism: the President — through more than a decade of practice — has tapped into the kind of toxic energy that mainstream American politics hasn’t seen since the […]Read More 2020 post-election meditations: What comes after Biden and Harris could be the worst President of all

Americans can learn an important lesson from Asian history … I was all kinds of DOUBLE-U-TEE-AITCH when President Donald Trump was able to skate past the COVID-19 portion of Tuesday night’s Presidential debate without Former Vice President Joe Biden completely smashing Trump’s B.S. With 210,000 dead Americans from coronavirus, Trump feels he’s still permitted to […]Read More 2 charts that completely shut down Trump’s excuses for why he didn’t protect Americans from the so-called ‘China virus’ attack
MAGA Nation seems to never have a problem with unity … The bearded man in the image above calls himself “Mike Gee” from Brooklyn, New York. His red New York for Trump baseball cap lets you know what he’s about. This photo was taken last night as he watched the streamed presidential debate from a […]Read More Difference between Red MAGA and the fractured Rainbow Left
what each person should (or must) do … I’ll revisit the debate issues in a later post but wanted to get a few notes on record before tonight’s debate starts. Both candidates have liabilities, which is amazing when considering that one of them is guilty of management malpractice that resulted in over 200,000 dead Americans […]Read More Quick pre-debate notes about Trump and Biden tonight
We now know what’s behind Trump’s crazy re-election campaign stunts … I need this job / Oh God, I need this / Show. “I Hope I Get It” from Broadway musical, A Chorus Line. President Donald Trump’s tax drama pulls the entire story together for us now: he really, really, really needs his job. I […]Read More Trump and taxes: America rewards (wannabe) rich White guys for failing up, but there’s more going on here
I hope every media outlet is paying attention to this … Earth is traveling through 2020 with smaller mountain ice caps, warmer oceans, a torrid letter run on hurricane names, an American coastline’s slow and inevitable submersion into the Atlantic Ocean, forest infernos that can’t be subdued by dwindling rains, and President Donald Trump picks […]Read More Scientific American — a magazine that endorses no one — endorsed Joe Biden for President
